PLYMOUTH (FOX 25 / MyFoxBoston.com) Plymouth Police and the Plymouth school district are investigating allegations that the Plymouth North High School baseball coach attended a party where underage drinking was present. Investigators were made aware of the allegations after complaints were made to the school. The school then notified police.Police Chief Michael E. Botieri confirms to FOX 25 that an investigation is underway about allegations that a parent threw a party for the team following the Division II State Baseball Championships. Botieri says people have made claims that alcohol was present at the party and that the parents and coach Dwayne Follette, who was allegedly in attendance, were aware of its presence. However, Botieri says investigators are having a difficult time getting witnesses to come forward and make these allegations on the record. Pam Myette, the parent whose party is now the center of a police and school investigation, says she has nothing to hide.Myette says that she hosted a cookout for the parents, players, and coaches of the Plymouth North Varsity Baseball team in late June. According to the police report obtained by FOX 25, an unidentified parent claims Follette gave players shots of alcohol and even “engaged in a drinking game” with them.
STATEMENT FROM PLYMOUTH PUBLIC SCHOOLS:
As the result of unsolicited reports forwarded to the administration of the Plymouth North High School alleging that Plymouth North High School baseball players and a baseball coach engaged in consumption of alcoholic beverages during a “breakup barbeque” or cookout, the school system began an investigation. At this time, the school district is in the process of an internal investigation by conducting a series of interviews, after which the school district will determine the appropriate course of action.Because this investigation is ongoing and the results of the investigation may conclude with reference to certain individuals at different points in time, we will have no further comment concerning this matter at this time.
Well you don’t need to be a rocket scientist to figure this one out. Little Johnny’s mother was upset that little Johnny got cut from varsity or didn’t get enough playing time so she sent an anonymous letter to the school trying to get the coach in trouble. That’s the case 193% of the time somebody anonymously complains about a coach.
Now having said that let’s assume for the sake of discussion that there was drinking going on at this party. And let’s assume the coach knew it. Honestly who gives a fuck? It’s not like this coach threw a private party in his house. This was a players and parents barbecue. So if the parents don’t give a shit than why should anybody else? I don’t care what the fucking law says. Like the fact that the police and school are still pursuing this investigation is a joke. Once it became obvious that a shit ton of parents were in attendance and they all supported the coach that should have been the end of it period. There just has to be better things for the cops to be doing than going on a witch hunt because Little Johnny got cut from JV.
